It seemed to me they were barely in business. The food is served from a steam table, very overcooked, under seasoned. Needed tons of hot sauce. Would not go back. Quite dirty as well.

I take all my out of towners here at least once. That goes double for coworkers. It's a LOT of food and it is consistently great. It's not much to look at, but go for the food and you'll be back.

The jerk chicken rocks. A very good style. Well worth a visit. The kind of food you would get in a Caribbean home. With very good vegetables.
